‘Lok Sabha is more powerful than ‘ Rajya Sabha1. Analyse the statement.’
Lok Sabha exercises supreme power in the following ways
(i) Any ordinary law needs to be passed by both the houses but in case of conflict, view of Lok Sabha prevails because it has large number of members.
(ii) Once the Lok Sabha paSses the budget or any other money related law, Rajya Sabha cannot reject it.
The Rajya Sabha can delay it for a maximum of 14 days or suggest changes in it which may or may not be accepted by the Lok Sabha.
(iii) Most importantly, the Lok Sabha controls the Council of Ministers. If the majority of the Lok Sabha members say that they have no confidence in the Council of Ministers, then all the ministers including the Prime Minister have to resign.
Thus it can be concluded that bbk Sabha is more powerful that Rajya Sabha.
